Manchester United are keen to sign Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains unconvinced by Luke Shaw. The Red Devils are keen to bring Reguilon to Old Trafford with him down the pecking order at the Bernabeu. Express Sport has all the latest.
Manchester United and Real Madrid have reportedly been negotiating a deal to take defender Sergio Reguilon to Old Trafford but Ed Woodward has slammed the brakes on the deal after being asked to include a buy-back clause.
Real are willing to let the left-back leave for a reasonable £27million.
Reguilon spent last season on loan with Europa League champions Sevilla but is third in the Bernabeu pecking order.
Ferland Mendy and Marcelo are ahead of Reguilon in Zinedine Zidane’s mind but he does not want to make the mistake of letting a potential future star completely escape his grasp.
However, the Mirror claims Woodward is not happy with Real’s demand to include a buy-back option.

Jadon Sancho impact
United would still rather prioritise the signing of Jadon Sancho ahead of any defender, reports claim.
The Red Devils have struggled to strike a deal with Borussia Dortmund who are demanding upwards of £100m for their prized asset.
However, ESPN claims United are still prioritising a move for Sancho and would prefer to bring in another forward over a defender.
That could mean any move for Reguilon is delayed if progress is made on a deal for the England international.

“So in case he does a fabulous season like he has done this year in Sevilla, Real Madrid can sign him again next year.
“The player likes the idea of travelling to England and playing in the Premier League.
“United and Arsenal will be the options but it’s going to be a problem of money, as it happens with all the players.”
The Red Devils would be able to financially outmuscle Arsenal and Sevilla if they do look to sign him, with the Gunners short on cash before player sales.
